Malory Band: £24.95*
I'm into (maybe obsessed) with keeping fit and getting those abs even though I'm far from it. However I do have the tendency to over eat especially when its my cheat meal/day or I have ridiculous cravings and it puts me back to square one. This was my biggest problem. This Malory Band is to aid weight loss by stopping you from overeating by wearing this on the waist. I had trialled this throughout August and was hoping it'll help me look and fit better into my slightly figure hugging dress, ready for my cousin's wedding which was at the end of last month. So has it done the job?
Yes it has and I'm still wearing it now. My waist measurement fluctuates around an inch everyday as I seem to get bloated a lot easier these days for some reason. You may think, some cord and silver, what's special about it? It's strong, adjustable, generally comfortable, good quality and can shower in it. You can wear it all day everyday. I wear loose clothing during the day, especially for work and this was unnoticeable underneath.
I have made the mistake of over eating and snacking a lot at work on the first day of trialling this and naturally, wearing it did feel uncomfortable especially when I sat down. A big, fat fail straight away. From the second day, I was able to keep on track of things. Exercising was an issue for me last month due to my ankle injury (and still recovering) however I exercised lightly, having to choose the correct exercises. Wearing this does have a psychological effect on you. It makes you think twice as to what you're cooking and the portion size even if I do have "cake, doughnuts, pizza etc" in my head. It had helped me with my posture which I find fascinating and still wonder how.
At the end of the trial, I had fit into my dress better and it was a tiny bit loose around the waist which I prefer. Combining this with healthy eating and exercise is the key. Just relying on this only isn't going to give you the results you want. It is an aid, not a miracle. It is a nice feeling when you need to make it smaller, making you more motivated to adjust it to the next slot.
I had randomly used this as a waist belt giving my loose dress some shape. I didn't get any funny looks and it didn't look bad especially on light coloured clothing! It's a 2 in 1 product. If you need something to help you lose weight and the constant reminder of your goals, this is the one for you even if it might be slightly on the pricy side.
What do you think of this?
